Any recommendations on the type of thread to use on the sail? My stitching is starting to come out in a couple of areas and I want to catch it before it becomes a problem. Thanks!

I've noticed this on mine too, interested in what people have to say. I know I read an old post about someone getting new see thru sail areas sewn in. Maybe that is applicable.

I did see that report a while back. Mine is not to that point, it's just the edges where some of the stitching has frayed somehow and is working its way out. I guess any threat used is better than none. I plan to just use the existing holes and make a clean repair (hopefully). I use the boat quite a bit and it is my 3rd summer with it, I will be grateful if a few stitches is all I have to repair!

I used heavy UV protected thread, same as we use to make the sprayskirts. We've found it at Walmart as well as sewing stores locally.
